Apple has been researching bringing light field panoramic imaging to the iPhone camera, a feature that would let you immerse yourself while exploring captured scenes with parallax, clear object separation and other visual effects in virtual or augmented reality.
If you take panoramic images, especially vertical panoramas, you're going to digg the improved cameras on the new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max smartphones. According to travel photographer Austin Mann, vertical panos taken with these latest Apple smartphones retain focus uniformly across the shot and no longer suffer from exposure issues.
Facebook today announced that people can now send and receive 360-degree panoramic photos and HD quality videos through the mobile Messenger app for iPhone and iPad, as well as via its messaging web app at Messenger.com.
As you know, Instagram currently does not accept panoramic images.
Apple has always been boring when it comes to wallpaper options on the iPhone. They debuted ‘dynamic wallpapers’ when iOS 7 dropped, but to this day, you're still limited to Apple’s stock selection; otherwise, you have to use still images and you can’t change things beyond that.
To fix that problem, a new free jailbreak tweak called PanoramaPapers by iOS developer sst1337 can complement your device by letting it stand out from the rest. It lets you have different kinds of wallpaper layouts on your device, depending on the images you choose.
Apple is giving away Panols for a limited time, a $1.99 savings, but only through its official Apple Store app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Created by Juan Arreguin, Panols allows you to share the panoramic photos taken with your iPhone, as well as other photos stored in your photo library, with Instagram users everywhere. Taking advantage of Instagram's profile grid, Panols showcases your panoramas to their full effect in the standard three-across display view.
You can edit the name, description and geolocation of all your photos and be assured that your original photo will remain intact as the app uses a copy for all edits.
Facebook today announced that it has started accepting 360-degree photo uploads. Panoramic photographs taken with your iOS device can now be uploaded to Facebook through the updated mobile app and are viewable in the web interface and on Facebook for iOS and Android.
Panoramic photos in your News Feed are marked with the compass icon. You can move your iOS device to pan around and even experience them in virtual reality with the Samsung Gear VR.
With Panorama photography mode, you can capture a 240-degree image in one shot, simply by panning your device around. By default, panoramas always start on the left so you must pan to the right. Since iOS 6, you have been able to change the direction you take panoramas in the Camera app.
In this tutorial, I'll demonstrate how you can quickly change the Panorama direction from the default left-to-right to right-to-left, and vice versa.
Following its App Store debut four months ago, Google's Photo Sphere Camera has been bumped to version 1.1.
The useful photography software which allows anyone with an iPhone 4s or higher to create panoramic images now features enhanced image quality when creating 360-degree images on an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.
Additionally, the library view now separates private from public panoramas and the built-in map has been upgraded so that you can expand or contract it as needed.
First introduced in 2012, Cycloramic has received much acclaim for its ability to capture 360-degree hands-free video using custom vibration patterns in the iPhone 5/5s. The app was even featured on the popular TV show Shark Tank, where it garnered a $500K investment from billionaire Mark Cuban.
But when Apple introduced the iPhone 6, with its slimmer profile and rounded edges, a lot of folks wondered what was going to happen to Cycloramic. After all, without the squared base, how was it going to keep the handset standing upright while spinning? The answer: use its power adapter as a base.
I'm a big fan of the Panorama capture feature that was added in iOS 6. I'd like to be able to use it while holding my iPhone in landscape mode, but other than that I think Apple did a great job with it.
It doesn't always work very well in low-light conditions though. And that's where the jailbreak tweak LLBPano comes in. It enables Low-light mode on the iPhone 5 when taking panoramic photos...
Better Pano Button is a jailbreak tweak for those that hate the original grayscale panorama button found within the iPhone's Camera app. The tweak will allow you to replace the button with a blue button while in panorama mode.
The developer states that having a blue button is for minimalists, which actually doesn't really make much sense to me. If anything, it's less minimal than the standard gray button. He also states that it is better, which is, of course, totally debatable. Check inside for a few more tidbits of information.
